  • 50 Days to Save the Planet My Sociological Footprint[4. The Essence of the Materialist Conception of History.Social Being and Social Consciousness]The fact is, therefore, that definite individuals who are productivelyactive in a definite way enter into these definite social and politicalrelations. Empirical observation must in each separate instance bringout empirically, and without any mystification and speculation, theconnection of the social and political structure with production. Thesocial structure and the State are continually evolving out of the life-process of definite individuals, but of individuals, not as they mayappear in their own or other people’s imagination, but as they reallyare; i.e. as they operate, produce materially, and hence as they workunder definite material limits, presuppositions and conditionsindependent of their will.Karl Marx.The German Ideology. 1845 Clive Burgess ©2012
  • 50 Days to Save the Planet My Sociological FootprintStrategy – interpretive interaction“Although thought maybe seen by some assubjective, it is the actions one takes by using onesown definition of the situation and the socialrelationships between the interactions of theparticipants and how others respond to the actionstaken, which create socially real consequences...”Clive Burgess 13th July 2005Clive Burgess ©2012

  • 50 Days to Save the Planet My Sociological FootprintMy new framework to conduct my social research on informal organisationswill look something like this... ethnography – social construction of culture➔ Interpretive (Interpretive Interaction) → Plan the definition of the situation → Ethnomethodology → looking at cultural means➔ Social-political (Ethico-political) → Patterns of Behaviour this is how its done round here the politics of everyday life➔ Teamwork → Rational Organisation We want this person to this that way, and that person to do that this way and so on → Division of Labour → Division of effort➔ Ergonomics → we want you to do this with these in this way to protect our health and safety ...➔ Using means as such as peoples bodies (health) and physical means such as fork-lift trucks (safety) according to cultural norms laws etc Clive Burgess ©2012

  • 50 Days to Save the Planet Society & RelationshipsSociety = the sum total of or an ensemble of social relationships...How do you define social relationships?A relationship is a quality which can be stated only of two ormore entities together where each refers to the other, not ofsome single thing.Social relationships are where some entity recognized as being socialthat is people, organisations or societies, are constantly in interaction witheach other at some level or anotherRelationships may be physical, biological, social or cultural.Example Physical: Cup and Saucer... Biological: Bird and an egg... Social:Husband and Wife... or Home and Work... Cultural: A noun and a verbClive Burgess 2010 Clive Burgess ©2012
  • 50 Days to Save the Planet RelationshipsRelationshipsActivities carried on in relationshipsA relationship is an interaction between two people... a husband and a wifeis a home relationship … a boss and a worker is a work relationship aninterrelationship strictly speaking is a relationship between two relationshipsA relationship between two relationships:...eg relationships in the homebetween husband and wife and relationships at work between a boss and aworkerInterrelationships are therefore relationships between relationships... awoman as a worker at work and the woman as a wife at homeBy extension intra-relationships is an activity carried on within a relationshipfor example the wife having sex with the husband but not with her boss thatwould be extra-relationships...
